Aptitude tests help avoid the stress and cost of a wrong hire
Don’t you wish you had a crystal ball when you hire someone? You might think that you’ve found the right person: their references are excellent, they interviewed extremely well, they have the right qualifications and experience… it’s a no-brainer, right?
While all of these things are important ingredients in getting a complete picture of the person you’re going to hire, there’s one element missing. In fact, as researchers Frank Schmidt and John Hunter discovered, after analysing over 85 years of research across 32,000 job applicants and 500 different jobs, the factors we typically rely on aren’t actually very good at predicting how someone will perform on the job.
What they discovered was this:
A valid cognitive ability or general mental ability (GMA) assessment is the single best and most effective way of predicting performance at work, regardless of industry, role type or location.Frank Schmidt and John Hunter
Time and time again, in job after job, they found that people with higher cognitive ability were more likely to:
- Learn more quickly
- Respond well to training
- Solve problems more effectively
- Have superior reasoning skills.
